Mathius' finds that everything is as Diedre had said; The levers on the walls activate the lighting within the work hall, bright as the noon sun from each globe, making it easy to see what you are working on. Neatly organized about the work room are the typical tools of the trade, for three craftsman. All appear to be of the highest quality indeed.
A stock of iron, steel, bronze, charcoal, coal,and a few things Mathius' can't readily identify are piled against one wall, neatly organized.
Upon opening the inner door, He steps into the gallery of Torsten, Master Armourer. There are 4 complete suits of armor, one of which is exactly like the one the gaurds at the library was kitted out with; A hauberk of scale, with a high, peaked helm, with all the attendant pieces. Mathius notes that the armor appears to be made for a woman, given the narrow shoulder in comparison to the chest.
The next is copy of the Lorica Segementata, the heavy armor of the Roman Legions. The heavy Iron breastplate in masterfully worked, and the craftsmanship of the whole set is something Mathius, at the moment, can only dream of aspiring to. Included is the large, Roman style shield and the weapons of the Legionnaire, his pilum and gladius.
The third is a typical suit of chainmail, save that the links are much smaller and finer than most suits he's seen, made by mundane master craftsmen. Only a single layer of links so small that almost looks like cloth, and nearly as supple. No weapons are on display, as the suit itself is a work of art.
The fourth is the strangest of all; It stands the height of a large man, and is mainly pieces of solid steel over more of the masterful small link chain mail. Even the hands are nearly fully covered in steel. He notes the joints, and how they appear to be made so that movement is not hindered in the least. Yet, despite the innovation, it is not nearly so finished as the others, being rather plain in finish. On display with the suit is a large war maul, a crude but effective weapon.
Displayed around the room are various weapons as well; There are some particularly wicked looking lance points, a battle axe so ornate it was propably useless, and various and sundry smaller blades. Central to the weapons display were 2 zweihander - the massive 2 handed swords of the Holy Roman Empire. The 2 on display are easily the finest examples of them Mathius has ever seen.
And then he notes the door in the rear of the gallery.
